A Chilly Saturday

     It has indeed been a chilly day, and it's going to be down around 30 degrees in the morning with showers.  I'm not complaining at all though, as I've been reading that a lot of my friends have had snow even! Bill has the wood stove all loaded and ready for that morning fire.  It will be warm and cozy inside.
     Great grandmothers need to brag a little, so here is a picture of my brand new great grand daughter.  Miss Olive Jane was born Thursday and weighed in at 9lb. and 4oz.  Of course she lost a few ounces as new babies do and came home at  8lbs., 14oz..  So here she is all dressed up to come home.

.

Here's Matt, my grandson with her.  He's so excited about being an uncle,  and this is the first time he has held Miss Olive. Thank you for blessings Father.


Our good friend, "Uncle Dave" has gone to visit with his family over Thanksgiving.  We have had some fun Sundays with Dave over the past several weeks, and we'll miss him over the next few days for sure.  Some pictures of our outings first. We have such a great time.




   Dave with our Riley and his Tangerine the night before he left.  Tanger is staying with us while Dave is away and she has really made herself at home for sure.



To catch up with my cross stitch piece, here is the latest picture of it.  I am loving it! Seems to be working up quickly and I love the colors in it.  The tower is nearly done, and it will be mostly the verse then.  There will also be a tiny amount of outlining as well.


My second shawl is also getting bigger and bigger.  Work on it during the late evenings usually when I'm too tired for my cross stitching.  I'm enjoying that as well.
Here is a peek at one of my Christmas Cacti.  All are so close to being in bloom, and a couple actually are all opened.  I'm really thrilled over the fact that after all these years, I have figured out how to grow them.  The results are so rewarding.


Now I must really let you go my dear friends and followers.  Ya'll have a wonderful Thanksgiving and be well and be safe until next time.  Love you all and remember to,,,,,,feel those colors around you.
